Luke Fickell vs Ryan Walters
The Wisconsin Badgers enter this game with an impressive 2-1 record, fueled by their explosive offense. They currently rank fourth in the Big Ten Conference for total offense, averaging a formidable 31.7 points per game. Last week, they demonstrated their offensive prowess with a sensational 35-14 victory at home against Georgia Southern. Notably, they scored 21 points in a single quarter, showcasing their ability to light up the scoreboard.
Quarterback Tanner Mordecai, a transfer from SMU, played a pivotal role in their victory. Mordecai amassed 236 passing yards and notched two rushing touchdowns himself. Additionally, running back Braelon Allen contributed significantly, carrying the ball 12 times for a total of 94 yards and two touchdowns, providing crucial momentum. However, it’s worth noting that the Badgers’ defense displayed some vulnerabilities, allowing Georgia Southern to secure 23 first downs and amass 455 yards of total offense.
The Purdue Boilermakers have faced defensive challenges this season, particularly following the departure of head coach Jeff Brohm to Louisville. They hired Ryan Walters from Illinois as their defensive coordinator to fill the void. However, through three games, Purdue ranks second-worst in total defense, yielding an average of 30.3 points per contest.
In their recent matchup against Syracuse, Purdue’s defense faced a stern test as Syracuse’s quarterback Garrett Shrader ran for four touchdowns, ultimately leading his team to a 35-20 victory. Although Texas transfer quarterback Hudson Card displayed his talent by throwing for 323 passing yards and one touchdown pass, Purdue struggled to contain Syracuse’s attack. They surrendered an overwhelming 271 rushing yards, a stark contrast to their meager 80 total rushing yards allowed.
